Located on Australia's East Coast, Sydney is the state capital of New South Wales.

Whether you're looking for fun on the beach or experience some culture, Sydney is an amazing city that offers both.

After a day in the Bondi surf, maybe spruce yourself up and spend a night at the Sydney Opera House. If you can't be there in person, you can always have a framed picture on your wall.

Mount Cook, New Zealand

December 4th, 2016

Mount Cook, New Zealand

Located in the centre of New Zealand's South Island, Mount Cook (Aoraki) is New Zealand's highest peak. For many, an image of New Zealand might include the snow-capped mountain of Mt Cook, or sheep. And they wouldn't be far wrong.

Available as a framed print, this unique travel photograph was used on our 2017 Travel Photography Calendar.

One might have to be really lucky to be presented with a picture of both in the same frame though.

While hitch-hiking through the Mackenzie region, I couldn't believe the scene in front of me when our car was held up by sheep on the road to Mt Cook.

The once in a lifetime view just cried out to be framed.

Suzhou Canals, China

December 4th, 2016

Suzhou Canals, China

Located about 100km west of Shanghai, Suzhou is famous for its canals, bridges and classical gardens; collectively an UNESCO World Heritage Site. With the Yangtze River Delta to the north-east and surrounded by lakes, it's not surprising Suzhou is often called 'Venice of the East'.

Available as a framed print, this unique travel photograph was used on our 2017 Travel Photography Calendar.

Suzhou

There's even a Grand Canal running through Suzhou, north to south, connecting Beijing with Hangzhou.

While many tourists might choose the easy option and take a boat tour on the Weichang River, it's easy enough to walk around on foot and discover the quiet backwaters of this 2,500 year-old city; founded in 514 BC as Helu, in the Kingdom of Wu.

An old Chinese proverb says, 'In heaven there is paradise, on earth there are Hangzhou and Suzhou'.

Holy Cow

December 4th, 2016

Holy Cow

The cow is sacred in India; and woe betide the driver who doesn't swerve into a field to avoid them. Cows are not penned into fields here, and in the smaller towns and villages they wander wherever they like.

It is even said that some people in India might like to come back as a cow in the next life. Now there's a thought.

Beijing

Probably photographed by every tourist visiting the Chinese capital, but few will get down on their hands and knees to find an angle like this; then wait for people walking through the frame to create a balance.

Moscow Kremlin in Winter

December 4th, 2016

Moscow Kremlin in Winter

Outside the Russian Kremlin in Moscow. It is a sunny day in late winter. There is no longer snow on the ground but it is still very cold and spring feels a long way off.

Available as a framed print, this unique travel photograph was used on our 2017 Travel Photography Calendar.

Moscow Kremlin in Winter.

Moscow


The lack of foliage on the trees allows us to see through to the golden onions of the Russian Kremlin Churches - the Assumption and Annunciation Cathedrals (left) and Archangel's Cathedral (centre).

The Ivan the Great Bell Tower - said to mark the exact centre of Moscow - is the tall golden dome on the right.

In Russia, the word Kremlin implies a medieval, inner-city fortress. In earlier times it would have probably meant a fortified town, or town surrounded by a wall.

There are therefore a number of kremlins in Russia; although when we talk about The Kremlin, we usually mean where the workings of power take place in the Russian capital, Moscow.

As well as being the official working residence of the Russian President, the Moscow Kremlin also houses Russia's main museum.

The outer red brick wall of the Moscow Kremlin was built at the turn of the 15th and 16th centuries; replacing the earlier fire hazard, made of wood.

The tower on the left is The Secret (Tainitskaya) Tower and to the left of that is The Grand Kremlin Palace.
